Best Snacks?


Hi! I'm new to this form and honestly I am not too familiar with peanut allergies. I am trying to figure out which snacks taste best. I'm always on the go and nothing is worse than being super hungry and reaching for a snack bar that tastes like cardboard. Any suggestins I would greatly appreciate!! Thanks so much.

There are lots of peanut free snacks that taste great! Do you have other allergies?

Quaker makes a great peanut free granola bar out of canada that you can purchase here:

Those sites also have other peanut free snacks.

What about the obvious? Ie: fruit, string cheese, crackers....

Thanks I'll try this recipe. We have had horrible luck with granola bar recipes. Ours come out crumbly and crunchy no matter how long we bake. We like the super soft and chewy ones! :)

Here is a recipe you can try if you would like to make your own.

1 stick butter 1/2 c. honey 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 tsp. cinnamon 4 c. rolled oats whatever dried fruit you prefer(even coconut)

Melt together butter and honey. Take off heat and stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Add oats and whatever dried fruit you prefer, (craisins, raisins, dried apple)You can kind of "wing it" with the amounts until it looks "right". Stir until it is all coated. Bake at 400 for 10 minutes. Stir and bake 5 more minutes if you like it really crunchy. Also, if you boil the butter/honey mixture for about a minute before you add anything else and don't stir it after baking it is more like a granola bar.
